I have an older 486 running Windows 3.1 with an 800 meg hard drive.  I would like to split the hard drive with about 500 megs dedicated to 3.1 and the balance to 95.  I understand the bootup will be 95 which is OK.  my reason for the split is to be able to run the two different versions of software.

Get Partition Magic. It will allow you to create a seperate partition for Win'95 and then boot up either version of Windows by making the apropriate partition active.
